    Congratulations on the Llama, the engraved ones are great in a collection and not rare so one can shoot it also. Engraved Spanish pistols usually were farmed out to local engravers who followed the factory provided pattern. They were done quickly and repeated often depending upon demand, the same person may engrave Llamas and then Star or Astra parts varying patterns as the companies demanded. Blue engraved is uncommon and gold wash even more so as most were given a chrome finish after the engraving was completed. An engraved Llama would normally sell for $10 to $15 more than a standard pistol.

    Whats the date on that, I'm thinking prior to 1968.

    Yes fast, as that was the mark up by Llama or Star so they must have paid the engraver pennies. An engraved Llama 380 in the sixties sold for about fifty bucks here in the US.
